Brett Goldstein wears Girard-Perregaux to Brit Awards
Actor Brett Goldstein chose to wear the Girard-Perregaux Free Bridge on the occasion of the 2022 Brit Awards, held on February 8th at the O2 Arena in London.
The Free Bridge and its close sibling, the Free Bridge Infinity Edition, are endowed with a distinctive arrow-shaped Neo that spans the base of the mainplate – like suspended in time - the shape of which upholds the Maison’s iconic arrow-shaped bridge design, but simultaneously reinterprets the contemporary structures often seen in architecture.
The Calibre Gp01800
The master watchmakers in La Chaux-de-Fonds have reinterpreted the tried and tested GP01800 in-house calibre, adding a sizeable dose of cutting-edge technology. Girard-Perregaux has used silicon to make the escapement and parts of the balance wheel. While silicon is used by some companies, it remains rare despite its many advantages. It is not liable to corrosion, is unaffected by changing temperature, lightweight and less susceptible to magnetic fields. These attributes confer an array of user-benefits. For example, where some parts made of conventional materials can behave differently at various temperatures, silicon components remain unaffected, delivering consistent timekeeping. In addition, silicon’s low coefficient of friction mitigates both wear and energy consumption.
